Griezmann, danger confirmed!


By: Manu Tournoux

Still out on Saturday against Cadiz, Antoine Griezmann has still not left the Atlético de Madrid infirmary while Didier Deschamps’ next list is looming. Could the crazy series of the Mâconnais among the Blues end?

Any news from Antoine Griezmann? These are not necessarily those that Didier Deschamps would hope for. Injured in the ankle a little over two weeks ago, the Atlético de Madrid striker has still not returned to competition with his club. The Mâconnais was withdrawn on Saturday for his team’s trip to Cádiz. And Diego Simeone does not know precisely when his number 7 will be able to return.

“We don’t know if he will be ready, had confided the Argentine coach in reference to the round of 16 second leg against Inter on Wednesday evening.He will not be available tomorrow (against Cadiz) and we do not know if he will be ready for the match against Inter. If he was not available against Inter, he may be available for the match against Barcelona (next weekend, editor’s note). »

Deschamps is counting on him

It’s all in the “maybe”, therefore, and it is the total uncertainty concerning Griezmann before the next list of the France team, which the coach must unveil on Thursday, in view of the friendly matches against Germany and Chili. According to TéléfootDeschamps intends to summon Griezmann, which gives reason to hope for a rapid return.

It must be said that Griezmann is an essential player for the France team. The former Barcelona player remains on a fantastic run of 84 consecutive games with the Blues, a run which is clearly threatened by this ankle injury. But for the last gathering before the Euro, Deschamps will do what he can to get his “Grizou”.
